Abhishek Bachchan and Katrina Kaif have put the rumors to rest now about their not pairing up together for a film. The duo will now be sharing the screen space opposite each other in a romantic comedy to be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi.
The last romantic comedy that Rajkumar Santoshi made was Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani which had Katrina Kaif in the lead opposite Ranbir Kapoor. So far, both the comedies that Santoshi has directed have been accepted well by the audience, while APGK performed well in the box-office, Andaaz Apna Apna(1994) film became a cult movie. Now with his next project Power starring Amitabh Bachchan being stalled, the director is eager to work with Abhishek.
Katrina said that after doing Sarkar with junior Bachchan and having a blast, she was only interested in doing a full-on romantic film with the actor. On the other hand, Santoshi is keen to tap the mischievous side of AB junior’s personality and bring it on screen in this new still untitled venture. While penning the script of the film, the director could only visualize Abhishek in the character and now plans to start the film as soon as possible.
One just hopes that Abhishek and Katrina can sizzle on-screen with their chemistry as well as make people laugh.
